WTF is with this ignition switch?

Hey Jeepers- I have a 90 yj 4.2 with tilt steering ...I had a electrical short that took out a fuse link- chased it out found the problem but it also took out my ignition switch. By that time the mosquitoes were getting thick and i was in a hurry to pull the ignition switch from under the dash. Problem now is my replacement switch doesn't appear to line up with the two mounting screws. Due to the bracket/collar that goes around the steering column. I can get the switch on the bottom screw but the one closest to the steering wheel wont go because of bracket/collar. It should only go on one way; due to the direction that the rod moves from the key lock. But there are two kinds of ignition switches (tilt and non-tilt) and they are totally opposite. I have looked at both and neither will completely work. Any suggestions would be great but could someone post a pic of there switch area. Thanks
